When I was a little girl, I loved to color. I have a fetish for pens. When I walk into a office supply store I always have to go and see what sort of new pens they may have; calligraphy, metal nib, gel pens, brush pens… It is so intriguing to me to see a big pack of colored pens. The packages of 100 really get my creative juices flowing. Oh what to create with so many random color choices to choose from? With the advent of Amazon, I can peruse the coloring instruments from the comfort of my own home.
